Hey guys, Dawn here again, your very thankful A Clean Cigarette blogger. I think it’s safe to say that around this time of year most are thinking about all the things in life that we are grateful for. Whether big stuff or small everyday blessings, most of us have something to be appreciative of. Without a doubt, we here at ACC have HUGE things to be thankful for, and it’s pretty much all because of you guys.
With that in mind, we thought we should tell you some of the ways we are thankful to you!
5) The smoker’s stories
When smokers succeed they like to tell people about it. And we sure appreciate it when you do! The best part? You guys spread the love around. From Facebook reviews to Google reviews to on-camera interviews we appreciate you. When you share your stories you offer hope to other smokers who need to make the switch.
Hope is a powerful gift to give, thank you.
4) Fact finders
When this blog first started I don’t think anyone expected it to be as full of information as it is. Least of all me! Believe me when I tell you that it took a ton of information gathering and information sorting to get the quality I wanted to provide.
The simple truth is I could not have found all this on my own. Very often you guys are the ones sending me stories and headlines from all over the web. And in spite of my delusions of grandeur, the truth is there is simply no way I could have gathered all this alone!
Thank you, gatherers! Keep up the awesome work and thank you!
3) Education speakers
If you have ever read a blog or shared or liked one of our posts then You are something we are thankful for. Helping to spread the truth about e-cigs helps us all. We are not just talking about truths we like either. We believe consumers have the right to buy informed. Or not to buy if that’s what’s right for them. So when you take the time to click, read or share, you are an education spreading, truth sharing warrior and we are and always will be thankful for you.
Education is the best weapon we have against fake news propaganda. Thank you!
2) The conversations
Once a month all of us ACC team members get together at an all-staff meeting. These get-togethers are not only a great way to keep us all on the same page in the stores. They are also great ways for us to get together for some team bonding time. Every single meeting I find myself listening to stories about our amazing customers and the conversations we get to have with them. Most times those conversations are happy, sometimes not so much. Regardless whether we are celebrating with you or crying with you we are thankful for your friendships and trust.
Getting to know and celebrate our customer’s lives the absolute best part of our jobs.
1) The most obvious one..
So if I did not start this list off with how thankful we are just to be here..well I don’t know what would happen because I couldn’t imagine not starting the list off with the fact that we are still here!!!!
We got hit from all sides this last year. Everything from sudden announcements from the FDA that changed our entire understanding of the upcoming PMTA. To the Governor creating industry ending regulatory overreach. It’s been a doozy.
Sadly we did have to close a few stores, which meant having to let go of some team members. However, with your guy’s amazing support we are still in the fight. Which is more than can be said for some in the industry. 🙁
Overall, it’s not hard to see why this one made our #1 spot on our list of things we are thankful for. Thank you!
On this Thanksgiving, we hope you and your loved ones have as many blessings to be thankful for as we do. And as you can see we have a lot to be thankful for. In case it hasn’t been said enough, thank you. Our entire business is built around you and we like it that way.
